Since the Last Time

I came across this song on YouTube. When I first heard it I thought that it about how it related to the adoption experience. These days with adoption on the brain, I can find meaning in just about anything. I really thought this song expressed the life-changing feelings that come with the miracle of adoption and how it must feel to go through the process, travel to Ethiopia, experience the country, and return as a mother.

Listen to Yolanda Adams sing, Since the Last Time I Saw You. The chorus says, "Since the last time I saw you things have changed, I will never be the same since the last time."

What a beautiful song/woman. I just sent you another email. Maybe it went into spam/junk?

I love Yolanda Adams and had never heard of this song. I guess that is another great thing about YouTube. I was looking for another song and this one came up instead. I love the words and the message.
